King Charles III has big shoes to fill as he follows his mother Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in Britain’s history, and takes on his role as the new Sovereign of the U.K. The 73-year-old royal has been in the public spotlight since birth, but his ascension to the throne has sparked countless headlines on when he’ll be crowned, where he may reside and every detail of his early reign. While we may not know what’s in store for the next chapter of the royal family, we do know we will see some new grooming products on hand at Buckingham Palace under a male monarch. Here, two royal-approved fragrances if you want to smell like the newly named King Charles.
Little known fact: the King is the owner of a sustainably sourced organic food company and he recently launched his own fragrance in collaboration with British perfume house Penhaligon. Paying homage to summers spent in the gardens at Highgrove House, his family home in the country with Queen Consort Camilla, Highgrove Bouquet is a unisex eau de parfum inspired by his personal garden and features notes of weeping silver lime, mimosa and cedar.
Using information from fragrantica.com, a survey by showerstoyou.co.uk noted that Prince Charles is also a huge fan of Creed’s Green Irish Tweed, which is also the most expensive fragrance favored by any member of the royal family. The fragrance description paints a picture of “hunting parties, hip flasks and horseback riding through the countryside,” which makes Green Irish Tweed the perfect scent for the tweed suit loving former Prince of Wales.
